    • Dallas County News Adel, Dallas Co. Iowa June 18, 1930 DEATH CAME SUDDENLY TO A. HOUGHAM Well Known Man Suffered Heart Attack While Enroute Home Following Family Reunion. DIED AT THE HOME OF MARTIN T. HOL Funeral Services Held Tuesday at the Panther Creek Church - Many Friends in Attendance. Albert Ross Hougham, resident of the vicinity of Adel for the greater part of his life, died suddenly Sunday evening while enroute to his home southwest of town after attending the annual Hougham reunion held at Riverside Park. News of his death came as a great shock to hundreds of Adel friends, as well as to the members of the family and those closely associated with him. A few hours before his death he was apparently in the best of health and spirits, strong and robust and without a thought of illness. While at the reunion he suffered a slight attack of indigestion after assisting to move a heavy bench, but it passed and little was thought of it at the time. When the family started to their home southwest of Adel however, Mr. Hougham was again stricken. While they were near the Martin T. Hol home his condition became such that a stop was made and a doctor summoned. Death came before the physician could reach the place, acute indigestion, which brought on heart trouble, being assigned the cause. The experience was a trying one for the wife, the aged father-in-law, Mr. F.E. Darling, and a son, who did every thing possible for him without avail. Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at the Panther Creek Church and were largely attended by old friends and neighbors. Rev. C.N. Bigelow, pastor of the Christian Church was in charge, the Masonic burial service being given by members of the Dallas Center lodge of which he was a member. Mr. Hougham had been engaged in the insurance business for the last fifteen years and for seven years has had charge of the farm department for the Hartford Fire Insurance Company. Albert Ross Hougham, son of Aaron and Sarah Hougham was born near Pleasantville in Marion County Iowa Sept. 18, 1878, and passed away June 15, 1930 age 51 years, 8 months. He moved with his parents to the Orton farm 6 miles southwest of Adel in March 1891, and has lived in this vicinity ever since with the exception of 4 years spent at Dallas Center. He was married to Florence Darling of Valley Junction, July 22, 1901 and to this union 4 sons, Floyd, Carl, Eugene, and Ralph were born. He leaves to mourn his sudden death his wife, 4 sons, 3 daughters-in-law, his aged mother, two brothers, Will of Adel and Fred of Chicago, 3 sisters: Mrs. Will Harmon and Mrs. Frances Hoopes of Adel, and Mrs. Edgar Hardin of Minburn and his father-in-law, F.E.
